What's different about Heritage Online for Business?

In addition to having all the features of personal internet banking, Heritage Online for Business allows you to securely submit and authorise payroll, creditor and debit batches over the internet.

Heritage Online for Business uses AES encryption as well as Vasco security token devices for the secure upload, authorisation and deletion of batches over the internet. The security tokens also allow a business to create authorisation rules to match their business needs.

One or more of multiple identities may be required to authorise a batch of transactions from different physical locations and this is easily achieved with these tokens and provides greater flexibility for your business. You are also notified automatically via email when a batch is nearing the requested processing date, if you have not yet authorised it.

What are the system requirements for internet banking?

What is the virtual (floating) keyboard option on the login page?

The virtual (floating) keyboard is an option for you to use when logging into Heritage Online on your desktop computer. The virtual keyboard moves to a different section of the screen after each character is entered. 

The online security environment has changed a lot over the years since we first introduced the floating keyboard. We've continued to add other layers of security and now have an online banking system that protects customers without needing the floating keyboard.

We do know some customers appreciate having the option to keep using the floating keyboard, so it's still available in the desktop version when using Heritage Online.

How can I keep my internet banking more secure?

  • Keep your anti-virus software up to date.
  • Check for spyware on your system by using anti-spyware software.
  • Choose a password that cannot be easily guessed and never write your password down. 
  • Never respond to an email that asks for your personal banking information.
  • Never leave the computer unattended while performing transactions online.
  • If possible, use a firewall.
  • Keep your Operating System updated with patches.

Why can't I view or download my eStatements?

Members using Internet Explorer 9 may experience problems when attempting to view and download eStatements. This issue is specific to version 9 and is due to an option in the browser’s advanced settings that prevents encrypted pages from saving to disk. When this option is selected, any secure downloads will fail.

You can address this issue by making the following temporary change to your browser settings:

Click on “Tools” and select “Internet Options”. In the Internet Options window, select the “Advanced” tab and scroll down to the section on Security. Under this heading you will find the checkbox ‘Do not save encrypted pages to disk’. Ensure that this checkbox is not ticked when attempting to download your eStatement and click on the “OK” button.

uncheck "Do not save encrypted pages to disk"

Why does Heritage Online log me out after 10 minutes?

This is a security feature used to reduce the chance of an unauthorised party gaining access to your personal information. If you leave your Heritage Online session idle for too long, your session will be terminated and you will be required to login again. This security feature cannot be changed on an individual basis and is applicable to all members.

More FAQs

What is Pay Anyone?

Pay Anyone is a password feature that allows you to add new internal or external payees. It is an alternative to SMS Security, and allows you to authorise new payees in Heritage Online by entering a set password (rather than a one time password sent to your device).

How do I add a new payee?

Heritage Online

In Heritage Online, the Pay Anyone process is streamlined. To perform a transfer to a new destination, simply enter the details of the new destination into the fields provided.

The system will automatically detect that it's a new payee and ask for the appropriate authentication. This will be either a Pay Anyone Password or a One Time Password depending on your settings.

Once the payee is added you can complete the transfer as normal. To learn more about transferring money in Heritage Online you can also watch this helpful how-to video.

  3. Click on the Someone New button and select the type of payee you wish to add.

How do I delete a payee?

Mobile Banking App

When making a payment, select My Payees.

If using an Apple device, swipe from right to left to delete your selected payee.

If using an Android device, hold your finger on the payee to delete your selected payee.

How can I stop automatic payments from my account?

If the payment is a periodical payment that you set up in Heritage Online, you can login to Heritage Online and follow these steps to stop the payment. 

If the automatic payment is a direct debit coming from an external merchant or biller, you may contact us and give us recognised instructions to place a stop payment on the Direct Debit. Alternatively, Direct Debits may be cancelled directly with the merchant/company they were established with. This will ensure your payment is cancelled within the conditions of your agreement with them.

Please note: In order to ensure that no further payments are debited to your account, when processing your recognised instruction to place a stop payment on the direct debit, all future direct debits from that particular debit user will be stopped.

If you believe a direct debit to your account was not authorised, you can either:

  • contact us and give us recognised instructions to dispute the transaction (in which case we will investigate the transaction and tell you about our findings); or
  • contact the direct debit user and dispute the transaction with them.
